Sellers: Be Aware of Scams

Several members lising cars for sale have encountered disreputal buyers. We hope your selling experience is positive, but be careful. The National Consumers League Website has the following cautions:

>NEVER wire money or use a bank-to-bank transfer in a transaction.

>Avoid payment via international funds transfer, pre-loaded card or electronic currency.

>DO NOT sell a car to someone who is unable or unwilling to meet you face to face.

>WAIT until a check (personal, cashier’s, certified, or otherwise) has cleared the bank to transfer title or the car itself. Funds being made available by a bank DOES NOT mean the check is not counterfeit. Clearing a check can take days or weeks depending on the financial institutions involved. Check with your bank about their particular processes for clearing checks.

>NEVER trust a buyer who says that the transaction is GUARANTEED by eBay, Craigslist, PayPal, or other online marketplace. These sites explicitly DO NOT guarantee that people using their services are legitimate.

>BEWARE of buyers who want to conclude a transaction as quickly as possible.

>CALL the buyer to establish phone contact. If the buyer seems to neglect details agreed to via e-mail or is unable to answer questions about their location, it is likely to be a scam.

>ALWAYS trust your gut. If a deal feels “fishy” or sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Other Scams include:

>A buyer will tell you that someone else owes him or her money that is more than the cost of your car. He or she will ask for the car and promise payment from the other individual.

>Buyer promises additional funds to pay for the cost to ship.

> Buyer sends payment that is over the asking price.

>Buyer makes a promise to make monthly payments

>The buyer will use an unknown escrow service to complete the transaction.

For Sale: 1932 Franklin Franklin Airman 5 passenger sedan for sale by Owner - Bedford, Texas

This is a very low mileage car and the original upholstery (I was told it is original, and it matches the pattern in the sales literature that I have) is still in excellent shape! In some pictures the upholstery looks brown but it is grey. No stains!
The car was disassembled when I bought it in May 2014. From May 2014 through May 2015 I had the body and fenders restored and painted, and I reassembled the car.
I refinished all the interior wood trim, restored the hydraulic brake system, updated all of the chrome and installed five new tires.
It is converted to a 12 volt system and an Air Conditioning system is installed!
I showed the car at the Million-Air lease company's "Wings and Wheels" show at Dallas Addison airport in May 2015 and was awarded "Best Domestic Car" trophy from among 50+ domestic and custom show vehicles.
In July 2017 I updated the engine with new Egge pistons, re-seated the valves and checked the connecting rod clearances.
The car looks beautiful and runs well - it is ready for a new owner.

Price: $30,000 OBO

For Sale: 1907 FRANKLIN Model ‘D’ 5-passenger Touring Car.

This car is one of only 3 known to exist and the only one running with it’s original authentic running gear. The car came out of long time storage from a private collection some years ago. It has never been to a Trek so the new owner can be the first to have that honor as well.

The car retains it’s original body and upholstery with the exception of the seat bottom cushions and carpeting. It is equipped with a complete authentic set of Solar lamps, including the rare Solar ‘Projector’ type headlamps, Solar carbide generator, horn, speedometer and many of the original tools. It appears to have never has a top installed, but we have fabricated a correct set of top bows and latching irons, and all that would be required to complete the top would be the sockets. The running boards have been rebuilt and covered with the correct white diamond rubber and brass trim. New wiring has been installed.

Since being taken out of storage the car has been serviced and participated in a Glidden Tour and the AACA 75th Anniversary Tour, completing both. It has also received 2nd and 3rd place awards at AACA National Meets. This large 4-cylinder Franklin is a strikingly beautiful brass-era car and is a delight to tour with. It is eligible for the Glidden and Reliability AACA tours, HCCA tours and one of the few 4-cylinder cars eligible for the New London to New Brighton tour. There is a collection of nice original literature that could be included as well. Asking $97,500 and would consider a trade for an early 4-cylinder Dodge Brothers and cash. PH (717) 645-0334 for more information. All calls returned. Located in So. Central PA. Additional photos available upon request.
